About This Collar:
These collars help with:
Size: The Parrot Poncho hangs shorter than other cone collars due to the neck construction. For instance, the medium hangs down about 3" from the top of the wings.
Style: The Parrot Poncho is one of our lightest, collars, featuring 2 layers of soft, thick fleece. It's designed for mild feather pluckers. That is birds that haven’t developed an obsessive habit yet. These birds only have small patches of baldness.
Our Parrot Poncho has a base made from one layer of fleece. The top layer is a matching pattern, cut into slices for chewing pleasure. Why not? After all, wouldn't you rather your bird chew on the top layer of a bird collar than itself?
The Parrot Poncho is soft and comfortable to wear, unlike traditional plastic collars. Best of all, it doesn’t impair your bird’s peripheral vision or his ability to eat and drink.
Washing: The Parrot Poncho is easy to clean and maintain. Just wash in mild soapy water and lay flat to dry.
Putting On: This bird collar has a stretchy knit neck similar to the cuff of a sweatshirt. Stretch the neck out and slip the collar over your bird's head.
Please know that feather plucking birds, especially those that have been plucking for a few years may chew up or outwit a bird collar. Plan to support acceptance with patient training and a bitter-tasting spray.
